 Here's a post for random thoughts for today, tomorrow, or any day for the rest of the month....write about anything.  You know, how your day went, what's your plans, what's on the menu,  or use it to vent etc.

Sometime getting things off your chest just helps so use this to do it!!!!!!

 So I'll start.  It's hot here today with a chance of more storms.  Last nights storms were a doozy.  I've got to run and take care of our car registration.....you'd think that we pay enough for the vehicles that you'd get a break LOL!

Dinner tonight is undecided because my day has been a tad off.  But I'm thinking of Crispy chicken wraps or salad...not sure.

Quoting bitchaboutinlaw:

Has anyone made a meatball stew in the crock?   Was thinking about it but I have fresh meatballs and didn't want them to turn to mush... ???

 How 'bout this

Old Fashioned Meatball Stew

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons minced dried onion
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs, plain or seasoned
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and pepper, about 1/4 tsp. each, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 to 5 medium red potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 or 2 carrots, sliced about 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped, or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried celery flakes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped coarsely
  • 1 can (10oz) cream of mushroom soup (can use Healthy Request or other low-fat)
  • 1 can (10oz) tomato soup

Preparation:

Mix eggs with dried onion, bread crumbs, Worcester sauce, and salt and pepper. Blend meat in and mix thoroughly. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Form meat mixture into meatballs about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter; brown on all sides in hot oil. While meatballs are browning, place the potatoes, carrots, and celery in a Crock Pot (3 1/2-quart or larger). Using a slotted spoon or spatula, place browned meatballs on the vegetables. Quickly brown the onions and add to the Crock Pot. Pour soups over all; cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours (3 1/2 to 5 on high). Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.
Serves 4 to 6.

 I haven't been on this site for quite a while, so I feel kinda lost here now.  I really should've tried to be on here more.  This is a great group for getting crock recipes; I've even been neglecting my crock:(

 My sweetie was diagnosed with diabetes over the weekend.  His prescriptions cost us $90 with his insurance.  Without insurance, it would have cost over $600!  What in the world do people do when they don't have insurance?????
